Yesterday was Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wedding anniversary. Here’s a passionate, discursive letter she wrote him in the summer of 1930, after her breakdown. “The sheets were always damp. There was Christmas in the echoes, and eternal walks. We cried when we saw the Pope. There were the luminous shadows of the Pinco and the officer’s shining boots.”

Richard Serra

"First working in ink, charcoal, and lithographic crayon on paper, Serra originally used drawing as a means to explore form and perceptual relations between his sculpture and the viewer. Over time, his drawings underwent significant shifts in concept, materials, and scale and became fully realized and autonomous works of art.

The grand, bold forms he created with black paintstick in his monumental Installation Drawings were designed to disrupt and complement existent spaces and eventually began to occupy entire rooms. In the late 1980s, Serra explored the tension of weight and gravity through layering, and his most recent work experiments with surface effects, using mesh screens as intermediaries between the gesture and the transfer of pigment to paper.”

Pestisani, Romania

Constantin Brancusi’s clean geometry, unveiling the essence of things in marble, wood and stone. The modernist sculptor born on this day in 1876 preferred simple clothes, a studio with a rock slab table and a primitive fireplace, and furniture, utensils and a phonograph he made himself.

Donato Sansone’s Digital Nightmares

Some artists sketch, others draw, some paint, while others animate, and some, like Donato Sansone, do it all. Donato Sansone’s Portrait is a combination of portraiture and video that turns stills into motion. Along with sound by Enrico Ascoli, Sansone has recently completed his video installation entitled, Portrait, which gives movement and sound to his dream-like visual renderings. Sansone uses images of real people, and through video editing and manipulation, elevates the still art into a heightened, more life-like dimension. As a collective showcase, his portraits are vividly stunning.

Describing his pieces as both, ‘nightmarish’ and ‘grotesque’, Sansone transforms ordinary people into extraordinary art. His stills and video captivate and invite the viewer to thoroughly inspect every square inch of the portrait. Putting his pieces to motion, along with enlisting the help of Ascoli, for sound, Sansone has managed to give life to and eloquently display a beautifully disfigured nightmare in just less than three minutes. Each piece in the Portrait collection features a headshot of an individual, with its natural lines and feature placements artfully and skillfully manipulated. The onlooker can easily identify the subject but is left to stare and marvel at its transformation

Watch the video, Portrait, here.
